Dear Kris & Family, So very sorry for your loss. I know how very difficult these last few years were for you and Billy, and the wonderful care you gave him. I always enjoy sitting with you in church, and yet no matter how difficult the times were, you never complained. He was so lucky to have you in his life. His suffering is over and I pray he is at peace. Take care of yourself Kris as the days ahead will be hard, but you are a strong person and God will get you through. If you ever need anything, please don't hesitate to call. ......Love Bob & Ann McGrath

I knew Billy as my Best Friend's, Kris, husband. Only got to know him from visiting Kris when I was in Norwich over the years.
He was always welcoming, had a joke or funny story to share. Even spending just those short visits with them, I could see that he was a genuine good man. Hard working, even after he retired.
My main fondness for Billy, was that he put a smile on Kris' face. I'm so glad they found each other and had these years together.
To Kris, his children, grandchildren, all his family and friends our deepest sympathy for your loss of this good man.

I Loved Billy. He would appear in the kitchen and immediately have a joke to tell or a prank to play on me. I have missed that! I am so grateful to him for visiting Dan almost every day during his last three months You worked tirelessly to make Billy's life as good , he certainly told me that many times. I saw how strong you were for Billy and he wanted to be strong for you. You are the best of neighbors, always helping friends and sometimes only just met people. I'll bet Dan and Billy are already keeping heaven alive with stories and jokes.
I am always here for you Kris
Love Sue

Dear Kris and family,
It’s taken several days to comprehend “Uncle Billy” is Now in heaven my heart is broken and can only imagine the party that will go on for days as he rides into the open gates . The best hugs and smile a person could ask for . He always called me his riding buddy, i loved to hear his bike pull in he never had to ask if I wanted a ride . My love and prayers to you and your family .❤️❤️❤️❤️

Our deepest and most heartfelt sympathies dear cousin. Your Billy was one of a kind. He was a good bad boy with a kind heart and a soft and gentle soul. Billy was always there to help a friend or enjoy a party. You were the calm to his storm,the ying to his yang. You came into each other’s life’s when it was meant to be. You had a good life together.
In time we pray that the sadness and heartbreak will be replaced with joy and happy memories.
We will miss his smile and his stories.
All our love and prayers are with you now and forever.
Sherry and Alan

Dear Chris, Billy, Carl, Mike and Melisa
Steven and I send you heart filled condolences in the passing of your dad. He was a great caring person. Billy was the type of person if someone was inneed of help he'd be there. He enjoyed his Harley Davidson, working on Farm with Walter, helping other contractors with digging jobs. He was there for everyone. My mom took him under her wing when he needed help and he always told me he was forever grateful. I could go on forever. All I can say is Uncle Wild Bill you are now at peace. You have certainly earn a double row of wings in heaven. Please don't take anymore crane jobs while u are there
Love you
